Re: RH Drive Model A

Synchro,

Thanks for the update. Yes, I heard great things about those Falcons, and remember wishing they would come to the US.

Re: Lifetime of Distributor Points ?

Like Greg said, for me the issue is wearing out the rubbing blocks. I like the points that I get at NAPA. I think the ones in my car are at least 5-8 years old....I would guess 10,000 miles. I...

Re: RH Drive Model A

I thought that Ford still had an Australian division. Weren't they still making cars using the Falcon name? I had heard that Ford Australia made really good cars. If they are gone, how long has it...

Re: Headlight bulbs

That's what I was asking about. It comes down to color temperature. There are actually laws that govern what can be used on the road. A lot of those blue bulbs are sold as "for off road use only."...

Re: Headlight bulbs

For those of you that do like LED headlights, do you have the White 6000k or the Warm White 3000k. I really don't like lights that are on the edge of blue, but Warm White doesn't always give the...

Re: Easy Oil Pan Baffel Removel

PalAl,

I like your pictures. That is exactly what I do. I really have no complaints with the other methods, but this just gives me a lot of control and less mess.

Re: Looking for opinions - compression low on 2 & 3

I'm a recent convert to the leak-down test. As alexiskai said, it will tell you not only IF there is a leak, but WHERE it is and how bad it is before you take anything apart.

You test the...

Re: Birthday present

That's terrible. I never think twice about driving my Model A anywhere any time of the year, but mine is not restored. It shows every nick and dent of its 90 years.

Re: Leaky roof

While there is a lot of good discussion going on here, keep in mind that this is a four year old thread.

I would love to know how burner31 made out fixing that leak.

Re: Oil pan gasket

It been a while since I have done it, but I like 700rpm's method. I have used the snap-up clips and they are a big help. I held the pump up with a loop of bailing wire. When the pan is in place,...

Re: Need Carb Cleaned or Rebuild

These carbs are so easy to clean, I would just do it. If you are not that familiar with the disassembly just take out the one bolt that holds it together. Don't worry about taking out the jets or...

Re: Connecticut license plate color

Charlie,

That was a very interesting site. Amongst the other things I found on that site were images of Connecticut plates through the years. It included the attached images. These plates...

Re: Need Info on Rear Bumper Flag Mount

With a four foot pole, I would think that would put an awful lot of torsion on the bumper. I would worry about damaging it. I would want to attach it something more secure, like rear-mount spare...

Re: Connecticut license plate color

WHN,

As I said, there is some debate, and I will be the first to admit that I could be wrong. It has been a long time, but I had looked at some of the state records that they likely used to build...

Re: Connecticut license plate color

The original paint wasn't intended to last long since you got new plates every year. It oxidizes over time and turns shades of brown.

There is some debate over what the original color was. The...

Re: Filling Pits on Leaf Springs

If you are just interested in cosmetics, they make spring covers.

They might do the trick for you.

Re: Troubleshooting advice

That's a clever trick I never thought of. I've used a spray bottle on the exhaust of motorcycles for the same purpose. If it turns instantly to steam I know I have a properly firing cylinder. If...

I know that Ed already mentioned it, but based on the symptoms you described I would double-check the points gap.

Re: Coupe Window Replacement

It has been a little while since I replaced that seal, but I seem to remember that there is an inner frame and the rubber is just squeezed between them.

Re: 1930 Model A 170B on the road after 6 yrs.

That is not a factory color on the either the body, or the rims, is it? I love it either way. It is a bold choice and beautifully executed.

Enjoy it for many years!

Re: Coupe Window Replacement

All the major suppliers sell some form of "Window Seal" or "Window Setting Rubber." You size it, cut it with a razor, and close the loop with super glue. I warm the seal up before stretching it,...
